Between Two Businesses, Feeling Like a Fool?
by Baeth Davis, The
Hand Analyst, Inc.
Remember the song
that goes, "torn between two lovers, feeling like
a fool?" I know
I can feel that way about all sorts of things -
not just lovers. Grin. Perhaps you're struggling
to decide which business idea to focus on. You know
you need to choose, but you don't know how. Your
hands give us clues as to what may be challenging
The middle zone of your thumb is known as your zone
of logic or the "third eye" zone. This
part of your hand represents your
ability to discern, plan, and decide. This zone,
between the tip and base of your thumb, can sometimes
contain a series of horizontal lines. These horizontal
lines operate as energy blocks.
If you find these horizontal lines on the middle
zone of your thumb, it means you are inundated
with choices. If you are a business owner
or wanting to start a business, you probably either
own one or more businesses or you're having trouble
deciding which one to focus on.
Let's use logic to explore your dilemma.
#1 You have LOTS of choices, lots of options.
This is good. This represents abundance. #2 Chances
are you created all these choices because you have
many talents. This is also abundance. #3 You want
to satisfy every choice and end up with lots of
unfinished projects. #4 You struggle with overwhelm,
lack of focus, frustration, and indecision. #5 Planning
and implementing a CLEAR plan... huh, what's a plan???
If you have horizontals on the middle zone of your
thumb, you are abundant but confused. What
is required is MAKING A CHOICE. In this particular
situation, HOW you choose is more important than
WHAT you choose. You simply need to choose and stick
with that choice.
Here's is my pet
formula for HOW to choose well.
Get a piece of paper and lay it down landscape-style.
Draw a grid on the paper with 5 rows
and approximately 15 columns . Make a list of all
the options, ideas, and goals you are currently
contemplating and put them at the top of each column.
(You may need more than one piece of paper, LOL!)
Then list your top 5 values down the left-hand column,
one for each row. (Mine include
Love, Health, Presence, Creativity
and Freedom.) Going across each row, rate the project
listed at the top of the column from 1 to 5 - 1
the lowest, 5 the highest - in terms of how that
project expresses the value in the corresponding
row. For example, let's say I want to publish a
new e-book. I would go down the column, rating that
project from 1 to 5 in terms of love, health, presence,
creativity and freedom.
Now, add up the
totals for each column at the bottom of the page.
Which projects ranked highest and which ranked
lowest for honoring your values? Now, pick the project
that rated highest and FINISH it. Do whatever it
takes to stay focused on your target. A coach, mastermind
group, or goal-buddy can be invaluable. Just remember,
you MUST choose or continue to run like a hamster
on the wheel of choices.
